Okay, I don’t consider myself to be very high tech. I haven’t used my ipod in 6 months and I refuse to text message. However, today I felt so cut off from the world it was scary, and I was having major withdrawals. Our internet is only working off and on so if I’m missing for awhile that will be why. We can no longer pick up a good signal and there is nothing the company can do to fix it so we’re looking for a new service provider. Every time I turned around today I couldn’t continue with my plans because I couldn’t get online. Here’s what I mean:
I wanted to preserve my garlic scapes but I didn’t remember how they said to do it on that website I looked at the other day.
Since my Mom, Brian, and I picked a bunch of strawberries on Saturday I was dying to try Abbie’s Strawberry Shortcake recipe but couldn’t get the page to load.
I was planning to browse recipes for this weeks’ menu plan and knew I wanted to make Quick Cheese Bread with dinner tonight. Luckily this thing started working. The bread is in the oven so I’ll keep you posted!
More importantly, the builder was here repairing the shed that burned and I needed to write him another check. I had to tell him not to cash it for a few days since I couldn’t get online to transfer the money from our savings to our checking, or to update our check register and compare the online banking with our Quickbooks.
Maybe I really am addicted to the internet like my husband used to claim. Of course he doesn’t say that now, he’s too busy fighting me for the computer so he can check the weather, browse craigslist, drool over tractors on ebay, and watch the grain prices on our local elevator’s website. Oh, what is this world coming to!?!
Where do you spend your time online? Do you rely on the web like we do?
